BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Amnesty International on Monday released a video documenting the 2013 killing of a Palestinian teenager by Israeli forces in the Ramallah village of Budrus.

Samir Awad, 16, was shot three times in the back of the head, leg and shoulder as he fled Israeli soldiers in January 2013.

Amnesty said Samir's killing may amount to an extrajudicial execution, or willful killing, which is considered a war crime under international law.

The video was released to accompany a report published last week which documented the routine use "unnecessary, arbitrary and brutal force" by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank.

The slaying of Samir Awad 16 years old, unarmed and injured, is murder! APalestinian child shot numerous times which included 3 bullets in the back of his head, is demonic on the part of the Zionist military junta.

The fact is that no Israeli Jew will ever suffer any serious sanction byt th Israeli for killing a Gentile. That's proven to be true time and time again. That's the way it is, that is the philosophy which engendered and glues the state of Israel.

It's not right....what can I say....the resistance the rocks the firebombs sometimes brings out a murderous reaction from an 18 yr old with a gun....it happens and will continue to happen...unless the Arabs give up all violence and the teaching of hate...the problem is that is a bridge to far ,given the history ....so the Arabs need to leave for Jordan...the only answer...although its not really fair either...where art thou Solomon ?

I am an American who is deeply ashamed that my government gives more than $3.1 billion dollars per year to Israel. When IDF soldiers wantonly kill innocent Palestinian men, women and children, the U.S. government says nothing. Where is the accountability and where is the justice for this young boy's family?
